This is probably the least visited center in the park since it has little to see inside and the gift shop is minimal. The bathrooms were out of order when we were there also. The employees were super nice and location is near several trails....More

Not a big gift shop, but great informative Rangers staff this place. Nice static wildlife displays offer a good perspective into the animals who live in the park. Nice hike around the area and quick access to the campground.

At the Ohanapecosh visitor center we visited it and walked around for a quick sec. The ranger there was very knowledgable and there was tons of history on the location and the park itself. There we hiked the Silver falls trail to silver falls. It's...More

The main reason for stopping at a ranger station is to get trail onformation. Sure there a a couple of displays and tiny gift shop but don't stop here for that. The young ranger who was there 2 days in a row had poor people...More

Rangers that staff the visitors center are nice. A very small selection of souvenirs available. The part I liked the most was the 3-D topographical map of Mount Rainier National Park with many of the trails. There are displays of local wildlife as well.
